Minneapolis-based Wind Energy America Inc. (WNEA) has signed a services agreement with Chaska, Minn.-based Outland Renewable Energy LLC for four newly acquired Gamesa wind turbines in Minnesota and Iowa. These wind turbines represent 5.7 MW of new wind capacity for WNEA.

It is expected that Outland will work alongside Gamesa, which has a similar arrangement with WNEA for its wind turbines in Iowa.

"Outland is known for the quality of the services it provides and for maintaining an extremely safe work environment," says Bob Knutson, managing director for WNEA. "We expect this to be the beginning of a close working relationship involving WNEA projects across the upper Midwest."
